I could never fit in it but great concept.

I don't think it looks like I'd fit in it very well. I'm not that flexible anymore.
logging small time for years but just learning how,  2012 36 HP Mahindra tractor, 3point log arch, 8000# class excavator, lifts 2500# and sets logs on mill precisely where needed,  Peterson ATS upgraded to WPF mill, maple syrup a hobby that consumes my time. looking to learn blacksmithing.

Pretty cool

I saw this one online the other day. Plug in hybrid that's rated at 1500mpg. Also sports a jet engine and up to 1000hp  :o  And 3 seats.

Might be a little easier to get into as well, although I can't seem to find a price tag. Suspect it would have a lot of zeros on the end.

A lot of those concept cars are cool, but not really useable. Around here, southwest Va. a coal truck would drive by, and that thing would be like an aluminum can getting blown around. They hype electrical vehicles all the time, but here none would be able to make it from my house 23 miles one way over two mountains to work. Batterys would never make it. Alternative vehicles are fine for a straight line, level, no wind, and no load. Completely unrealistic for real world use though.
